I am considering a 2 inch lift in rear from shackles and new shocks, and front from a tb crank. But i have heard that 2 inches ins quite a bit to expect from a stock tb setup and that they will probably snap, is this true?

Saw one snapped on a VW once :lol: But there are lots of guys on here with 2" extra height from the TB adjustment. That's what I had at first -- took 7 turns and that was all I was willing to go. One of the things that motivated me to go ahead and spring for the lift kit was that, after several months, my CVs started occasionally popping when the wheels were turned to full lock and the suspension flexed. But that's the only problem I had. If you think about it, at rest there shouldn't be any more torque on the TBars with them cranked. All you're doing is changing the angle of the adjuster cam, which then changes the angle of the lower control arm. I suppose, if you bottomed the front suspension, you could overtwist it though. Just don't thrash it and you should be fine :D

To stop the popping just drop the front diff. Mine went away as soon as I dropped it.

That's right coyote, that would have solved the problem. But it made a good excuse to take the plunge :twisted:
